ReactOS cursor v1.1

Post by manatails007 » Fri Feb 15, 2008 9:01 am

my 2nd reactOS cursor(animated)
--changelog--
1.0->1.1 used ReactOS cursor, instead of using microsoft cursor

I hope it'll be the default cursor of ReactOS

by the way, if I continue making cursors and wallpapers, theme etc. can I be media team?

Very good, you used the free cursor! I like the animated ones, i tried them in Windows. I think these cursors should be included in the ReactOS bootcd, so they can be used as an alternative cursor theme.

Ros still only supports 1bpp inanimated cursors, and it probably isn't a big priority to get them supported.

Where is the mouses tail? :p The busy cursor icon is pretty good! I will save the images for some day when ReactOS is ready for animated cursors. (If they are GPL?)

take the two balls and let it go over cross likt the two ..

orginallogo and make two balls inside with 15 or
better 18-20 lil' pictures over it, and save it as ani..

I know that the devs want to stick with the Win2000 look but something trivial like a cursor shouldn't be too much to ask. I understand that tampering with Explorer makes or breaks the system, but cursors aren't kernel code. Maybe if we're lucky they'll think outside the box for once. :lol:

I personally like the one with the ReactOS logo implemented because it adds some ReactOS character to it. Pretty clever to have the atomic balls orbit for loading.

anything but the green ring of death! it just sits there spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning!, i agree with RaptorEmperor, the atomic balls are cool.

Some extra stuff to include on the bootcd, like artwork, wallpapers and extra mouse themes are always cool. People love that stuff, so they have some things to play with when they try out ReactOS for the first time. Off coarse it won't be included untill ReactOS is ready for daily use.

Cursor handling is very much kernel code.
As I've said in a previous post, we currently only support 1bpp monochrome cursors. So until I (or another dev) implements support for 32bpp cursors, the ability to use fancy cursors isn't possible.

When it is, we'll implement the ability to install your own cursors so everyone is happy.
